MINOT, N.D. (AP) - Minot residents are deciding the fate of a proposed $39.5 million school bond measure.

Tuesday’s vote is on a scaled-back version of a $125 million bond issue that voters narrowly defeated last December.

The revamped proposal would pay for construction of a new elementary school, additions at two other elementaries, and safety and security upgrades at all district schools. The owner of a home valued at $200,000 would see property taxes go up about $120 annually.

The bond issue defeated in December would have included a second high school, and would have raised property taxes about $465 annually on a $200,000 home. The vote was almost evenly split but the measure required 60 percent approval to pass.
